    Well at least you'll impress Baldy (btw waiting for him to upload his Mazda 2 driving vids) with the sky. ;)

    I'm more impressed with how your camera (phone with sticky tape) survives the cobblestone bumps. :)


    Were you driving somewhere or just going for a drive? And of course, I've already responded to that last bit of the film when I saw it yesterday.

    I guess you're right, I just found out that shipping to Finland would cost an extra $90 so I guess I'll just keep entering the daily giveaway :lol:

    I'm trying to work out where LF got the $500 figure from. Sure you could theoretically spend that much on GoPro accessories + the camera, but you definitely don't need them to get going.

    If you've got a decent smartphone camera you could look for a car mount that doesn't block the video camera.

    iPhone 3GS, the recording quality is far from good :lol:

    I talked to my mom and she said that she could pay some of it if I start getting better grades at school.

    :lol: Because i did a very well job. Lol

    If you watch untill the end, thing that you clearly didn't, you will listen the Punto goes 0-6000rpm at leaving the toolboth. I removed the sound because the car is already silent, but yet, it is a 1.4, so it keeps at 3500 rpm going at 120km/h, listen that all the time is boring.

    Here's one I recorded yesterday while driving to my mums. I really did plan on making it more exciting until I got stuck behind the 40MPH brigade most of the way:



    I did give it some stick in places, but you can hardly hear it :lol:

    I'll have to see about doing a video once I get the MR fixed up!
    I do alot of my fun driving on my own, early in the morning or late at night and don't have a camera I could mount, and my phone is 5 years old!

    I believe I may have a vid of my driving the 75, but it's of me and not the road(may be able to makout the nice view as I'm driving):cheeky:

    Thought I'd join in with this, this is how long it takes to navigate Blackpool town centre.

    Thanks for sharing. If it wasn't for the music I would've thought it was James May driving (i.e. letting that van go in front). With the field of view (mount the phone sideways next time) I thought you were going to crash into more than a few little obstacles :p


    Once thing I've noticed with these UK driving videos is that you never seem to get anywhere fast; instead you just drive through these little tiny maze-like roads. It seems that there are a lot more main roads here where the traffic moves faster and there's less faffing about with turning at intersections.

    I'm not this crazy driver everyone seems to think I am, I do have my speedy moments though on the open roads. And yeah I'll be mounting the phone sideways for the next video, iPhone confuses me with which way is the best for taking pics and vids as they show up either way on the phone but not pc.

    And yes the British roads are built like a maze, but once you get out into the open they are quite wide and fast (around here anyway) I'll make another vid today of my commute to work which is big wide open roads.

    He probably nearly took his mirrors off several times in the making of that video. :cheeky:

    I recorded 2 today, but I left my phone cable at the other house. So when I've uploaded them to YT from my phone they will be here! May take about a year though.



    I wasn't speeding much at 4:40, I was almost within the 10%+2 limit! That road is so fun, shame it's not very long when you go a bit quick. :(

    E: Added vid

    I never assumed you were a crazy fast driver Baldy - after all you drive a little Mazda 2 :lol: (jk)

    Would be cool to see you go for a spin on some twisty B roads that have a nice high speed limit Mellors. And you have a 10% + 2 speeding buffer? :eek: Here it's about 3 or 3 kph regardless. Only on roads where the speed limit is 100kph or more doe it switch to 3%.
    Then again you guys are in MPH, so that makes the buffer even bigger.
